Welcome to Health Education K-12!

  • Health education is linked to the academic success of youth. When taught using a skills-based approach, students develop health literacy skills that enhance their ability to obtain, communicate, process, and understand basic health information and services so they make age-appropriate health decisions present day, and throughout their lifetime.  

    Please contact us if you have any questions about K-12 Health Education curriculum, parent/guardian documents or resources.
